. and growing.on and the debt ceiling had been set a certain level. now they have uncapped it until may 16. the government can continue to burn as much debt as they need to finance the government through may, and that a couple more months, as they use a murder to measures at the treasury department, but we will close -- we will be close to $7 trillion by the end of the year. host: you can contact us here or send usc-span.org a tweet to twitter.com/cspanwj. the house has passed a budget resolution through the committee, no problem. then it will go to the senate floor, their budget resolution. both of these things will be happening next week. i think there will be more interest on the house side. the republican caucus in the house is a little less predictable, let's put it that way, than the senate democratic groups. if they can keep this budget resolution and get it through the house floor, then we can begin the process where the senate democrats and house republicans meet in conference and try to iron out the differences. that will be difficult but the process that needs to take place if t
to this debt ceiling debacle led to the first downgrading of american credit in the history of this country. we have a president who refuses to put a single plan on paper that addresses the deficit spending, entitlement reform, those are inexplicable. he is willing to do a photo op with he's more than willing to do a theo op to talk about 1% of total annual budget. if the president is word about overtime pay for capital janitors, i say what about the stagnant wages of millions of american workers? what? americans resigned to food stamps? what about small businesses and homeowners that cannot get loans because of dodd-frank? what about more than 20 million americans who cannot get full- time work due to the most anemic recovery since the great depression? mr. president, your plan to tax and spend our nation to l asperity will fai spectacularly as the economics you have borrowed from john maynard keynes. thes be clear about what is crux of the debate in washington. americans will surrender to the creation of a massive welfare states in the image of western europe. thequarrel is not with legitimat
after another, whether it's the fiscal cliff, the debt ceiling, or the sequester, if they want government to function? >> yeah, i think they got their universes mixed up. across theory is big in physics. so is string theory. they're stringing us along. they're trying to deny the legitimacy of any kind of countervailing argument that could put their stuff into context, to say your budget is really shrinking the ability of most americans to be able to eat every day. you're shredding the safety net. you are casting aside to the margins those people who are already working class and barely middle class and who can't make it. god knows what the working poor do which means they get up and work 40, 50, 60 hours a week and still can't make ends meet. this is a draconian measure deployed by people who seem to be out of touch. i think cpac reinforces and underscores the fact they're so far out of touch that they're in a different universe here. they have to come back to earth. there's a crisis going on, all right, martin, but they don't seem to be in touch with it. as long as they refuse
by the end of this month as planned, because that there is a forcing issue when the debt ceiling comes up? >> yes. >> and i was this the room when one of the best analysts in washington politics say, there is not going to be a deal on this, because both sides have too much to lose and you want a deal that says, hey, i will raise your taxes and cut your entitlements, nobody is going to buy that kind of deal. >> and right. deep defining differences of the parties that cannot be papered over by a charm campaign. it is not going to happen. and now it does not mean that we won't reach a resolution to the debt ceiling and not going to default on the debt, and the markets in the economy may react negatively in the spring and summer as they did in 2011 as we had a deal that was made, but it will take a while and it will come back. >> andy, great to see you, and lauren, nice to be with you. >> thank you for having me. >> thank you. >> and josh lipton. >> well, tyler, american express enjoying a pop, and today, american express is right for the times and it is wealthy customer base is insulated fro
, repeatedly whether it was the debt ceiling negotiations or the super committee. or the fiscal cliff or the sequester deadline. now because republicans chose to embrace the sequester, let it take place, let it be implemented with all its negative impacts, that's a negative. but the fact is it means we don't have the looming deadline that requires you know, huddled negotiations with congressional leadership to try to produce an outcome before you know, something terrible happens at midnight on any given day. we now are engaged in what's called regular order. budget process that includes the house passing a budget resolution, the senate passing its budget resolution. the president submitting his budget and then hopefully, hopefully through conference you know, through meetings of the house and the senate, you know, some kind of compromise emerges that represents the balance that the american people want. you know, we can, we hope that that's what happens and that's why the president is engaged in this strategy. we don't know if it will, because you know, it's definitely, when you hear
. the resolution to the debt ceiling to buckle led to the first downgrading of american credit in the history of this country and we have a president who refuses to put a single plan on paper this seriously addresses the deficit pending, entitlement reform. those are inexplicable. but he's more than willing to do a photo op with first responders in teachers to do cry for spending reductions that amount to less than 1% of the total annual budget. if the president is worried about overtime pay for janitors, i say what about this stagnant wages of millions of american workers? what about the one in seven american% of its stance? what about small businesses and homeowners can get lost because doc frank has frozen credit for americans all across this country? what about the more than 20 million americans who can't get full-time work due to the most anemic recovery as the great depression? mr. president, your plans to tax and spend our nation to prosperity will fail aspect pakula really is the economics you fired from john maynard keynes. [applause] let's be clear about what is the crux of the deba
had the fiscal cliff, the debt ceiling, we had joe biden's gun control task force and most recently the sequester. in reality, these are government side shows in washington that we have allowed to take center stage to read as conservatives, we are falling into the slideshow trap. all of the slide show the dates are about government. today's conservatism is far too wrapped up in solving the hideous mess that is the federal budget. if the deficits, the mammoth federal debt, the shortfall on the entitlement programs, even as our president creates new entitlement programs. today's conservatism is in love. we seem to have an obsession with government bookkeeping. i am here to tell you this is a rigged game, the wrong game for us to be playing. yesterday was a fiscal cliff, today the sequester, tomorrow the shopocalypse and the fiscal armageddon. i have news for you. our government already went off of the fiscal cliff. it hadn't years ago. it happened every year for the last several years. and yet we somehow think if we can just unite behind a proposal to cut the deficit and the debt if w
